Basel, Switzerland - Cathedral Lit at Night

The exterior of the Basel Cathedral is made of red sandstone and colored roof tiles and two slim towers.  The north tower is named Georgsturm and the south tower is Martinsturm.  They are named after saints of the knights George and Martin.  The towers both consist of three lower storeys (a part of a building that can be used for living, working, storage, etc.) and several Friezeschosse (open storeys).

 A sundial and a clock.
 The lights are coming on as the sun goes down.  Notice the lights at the top of the left tower. There were musicians there.

 There is a full moon, that is the little white dot.
